Waste tires can be recycled into granules or rubber powder by a tyre recycling machine for sale. The machine can not only solve the serious problem of environmental pollution, but also can turn waste into wealth.
As the top tyre recycling plant manufacturer in China, We have been specialized in manufacturing all kinds of environmental protection equipment and providing the best solutions for recycling waste tyres.
Rubber Tire Recycling Process
- The first step is tire shredder machine, is used to shred the whole tire into TDF rubber chips in 50*50mm.
- The second step is tire rasper machine, is used to make the rubber mulch in 10-30mm. it can be colored rubber mulch as filler of lawn or garden.
- The third step is Rubber granulator, is used to make the crumb rubber or rubber granules without wire and nylon. it is third step in whole tire recycling production line.
- The rubber miller is used to grind rubber powder. it is belong to final step in whole waste tire recycling production line.
What are Recycled Tyres Used for?
Once car tyre recycling has taken place, the materials retrieved from them can be used in many ways across different industries. There are four main ways a tyre can be recycled, depending on its state when disposed of:
Re-treading: Old tyres that still have enough structural integrity can be remoulded using recycled rubber treads, extending their life and creating ‘like-new’ tyres. It is estimated that 50% of truck and bus tyres in the UK have been re-treaded;
Re-use: Scrap rubber collected from recycled tyres can be used in construction materials, deployed as a material in roads as well as sound-proof walls, bridge foundations and more;
Energy recovery: Through a process called pyrolysis, end-of-life tyres can generate gas and oil, replacing coal in some instances (such as in cement kilns and paper mills) – all helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions;
Recycling: Once all the other materials such as steel have been removed, rubber from tyres can be shredded and ground into a new material called crumb rubber, which is used in a surprising variety of products.
Features of Tyre Recycling Machine Price
- The pre-crushing system can be equipped with bolt cutting tools to minimize operating costs and simplify line maintenance.
- The two-stage rasper system effectively releases steel from the rubber for efficient separation and clean line production.
- The fine granulation system is equipped with a special rotor specially designed to reduce the rubber size of the tire. It provides maximum throughput while minimizing the amount of fines generated. The machine is also optimized for low operating and wear costs.
- Inhale textiles and dust at several locations in the recycling system.
- The central reverse jet filtration system extracts dust from the entire system.
- Our milling system can be installed at the rear of the tire recycling system. The size and configuration of the milling system is configured according to specific production requirements, ie size and throughput.
- An advanced sound attenuating enclosure is available to reduce the noise level of the system to <85dBA.
- Water spray and atomization systems are installed on critical components to keep process temperatures safe and prevent fires.
- System automation ensures component operation links, maximizes system capacity, and best protects the system from interfering materials.
Recycling Waste Tyres in South Africa
In 2011 it was estimated that 60 million used tyres could be found on South African soil – more tyres than people. With a further 11 million new tyres entering the market each year, and a recycling rate of only 4%, the situation was a growing societal problem. Not only was this linear economic model a waste of raw materials, informal disposal methods (such as burning) exacerbated the ecological damage, threatening human health. It was also an economic headache for dealers who had to find space to store the used tyres, and pay for their removal.
Now in South Africa, the recycling rate for vehicle tyres increased from 4% to 60% in the space of 3 years after the implementation of a new waste management plan. A new circular economy strategy was developed, whereby used tyres were collected from dealers, brought to dedicated depots, and then transported to processing plants for recycling. All activities were funded by introducing a tax instrument that placed a levy on all new tyres.
Is Tyre Recycling Profitable in South Africa?
Tyre recycling business in South Africa is very promising and profitable. First, there are millions of waste tires to recycle, as well as tons of rubber products, such as scrap conveyor belts. And most old tires have been collected but only 20% of them was recycled. It means that investors can find rich and cheap raw materials easily. Second, manufacturers and importers pay a levy of $223.20/ton, plus 14% value added tax for all new tyres in the South African market for recycling old tires. You can get a lot of subsidies from the government if you start a tyre recycling plant in South Africa.
